Post Discharge Project
This program works to support seniors and marginalised individuals (due to immigration or income status) after discharge from Etobicoke General Hospital, Brampton Civic Hospital and St Joseph Health Centre. It is intended to promote independence and well-being of participants through connection to local community resources for physical, mental, emotional and social well-being. The program includes reassurance checks, friendly visits for home bound clients, and connections to community resources the individual might not otherwise have.
